The number of the beast!

The number of the beast!

Certain things catch your eye and the number of the beast - 666 - had caught my eye not once, but twice on a matter of minutes as far as Vital Pompey was concerned last night...

Not only did I get home last night to find that sometime between 4pm and 11pm someone had registered to Vital Pompey to become our 666th member - who they were I do not know, but the other instance occurred just as I was about to call it a day... I noticed that my point's tally in the member's league had ticked round to 666 points!

I do not think myself as 'overly superstitious' but 'I will not change my Pompey shirt if we are on a run of unbeaten games', 'I will not walk over a run of 3 manhole covers in a row', 'I do not like the number 13' and it kind of freaks me out when 'I do notice the beasts number of 666'.

Quite what the point of me sharing this with you is I am not sure, I just had to and what it means I do not know, probably nothing - I just hope it is not any kind of bad 'omen' for the weekend ahead...

2 seasons ago I was unable to get near a radio to find out what was going on for 2 matches in a row. The first was Man City - and the second was West Ham. Yes, the start of the Great Escape! I spent the rest of the season being unable to listen to any matches on the radio or watch them on TV. It was hell - but I did it for the blues! It worked didn't it?

Vital View - League 2, 29th April 2017

Plymouth moved to the top - they'll battle with Doncaster & Portsmouth to be crowned Champions. It looks as if Hartlepool will join Leyton Orient in Non-League.

Video - Mansfield 0-1 Pompey

Well, it'll go down to the wire as Pompey's win at Mansfield means the Blues, third, can still win the title ahead of (now) leaders Plymouth and Doncaster.
